"it wont or cant do windows updates"
What are the actual symptoms? Do the updates even arrive?

You can get manual updates from here if that helps:

Nice Derek,

As an aside I was curious about windows installer versions offered at second link and came across the fact that 4.5 is out for XP SP3 and I needed it.

Well, 3.1 was working but 4.5 is available is a better way to put it.
